Is the eliminator air cleaner a standard base with the exception of a smaller lid and an airseal. I cant tell if it's a completly special unit or if the lid and large rubber seal are the only differences. Any info would be great.

Air cleaner

The only Eliminator produced with ram-air was the 428 Cobra Jet.
The air cleaner assy. is unique to the 68 1/2 Mustang and Cougar
and 1969 and 1970 Cougars with a 428.There may have been some early
1969 Mustangs made with this air cleaner.The last time I tried to buy a complete unit, it was priced at $2500.

eBay Cougar

That pic is from the Cougar that's currently on eBay. A very nice restomod. He said (in the discription) that he added the ram air. It is not a factory set up.......but it should be effective, and it looks real clean.

restomod vs restoration

You probably wouldn't want to spend $2500 for something that wouldn't be "correct" anyway. But if you did want to add Ram-Air to a 351 it's fairly simple. You'll need a hood scoop ($100-$200), a hole in the hood ($0) a smaller diameter aircleaner lid that will fit inside the base ($25?+filter) or a larger air cleaner base (more $ way to go especially if it's a 428CJ base) and a rubber seal (???).

Just thinking out loud......

I think Tony Branda's has the repro seal cheaper than most vendors. I'm not sure but I think around $80 or $90.
